The information you see in the Properties window depends on whether objects are selected:


♦    If you open the Object Properties Manager with no object selected, you see only properties that apply to the entire drawing, such as UCS, current layer, and viewport data. You can select an object while the window is open to display data on that object.


♦    If one object is selected, you see both general information and geometrical information on that object.


♦    If more than one object is selected, you see general information such as layer, color, and linetype data, but no geometry data.


♦    If more than one object is selected and you choose one type of object from the drop-down list at the top of the window, you see information applying only to that type of object. This drop-down list provides a quick way to filter the type of objects you can edit.


Click the filter button at the top-right corner of the window to open the Quick Select dialog box, covered in the next section. The Quick Select dialog box lets you create a selection set according to specified criteria — for example, all green lines. You can then change the properties of these green lines.

‘ The Properties window has two new buttons at its top-right corner.


The Toggle Value of PICKADD Sysvar button turns PICKADD on and off. PICKADD changes how you select more than one object. When it’s on (set to 1), the default, you can continue to select objects and they are added to the selection set. When it’s off (set to 0), you need to press Shift to add objects to the selection set; otherwise, selecting an object deselects previously selected objects.
